We are delighted to announce that David Molyneux has been selected as an Honorary International Fellow of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene for 2014. It is one of the highest honours the Society has to offer.


Morbidity management are pleased to welcome Charles Mackenzie who will be working with us on our new morbidity management initiative. Charles is Professor of Pathology at Michigan State University and has a depth of experience working on morbidity management linking closing with WHO. His background is the pathogenesis and treatment of onchocerciasis and filariasis, combining laboratory studies with field work and mass drug administration programmes.


The Centre for Neglected Tropical Diseases (CNTD) was established in 2000 and has an outstanding record of achievement in the areas of implementation, research and capacity strengthening in neglected tropical diseases. Additionally, CNTD has a key partnership role as the Secretariat of the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis.

CNTD's mission is to support national NTD programmes, provide technical assistance to a global initiative, strengthen the evidence base to inform policy makers, and identify and prioritise interventions that will eliminate filariasis and reduce the burden of other neglected tropical diseases.  CNTD's vision is to eliminate lymphatic filariasis and reduce suffering from other NTDs in economically poor populations in Africa, Americas, Asia and the Pacific Island nations.

The Centre is a constituent of a larger depth of NTD expertise based in the School of Tropical Medicine which leads in NTD research and global disease elimination/control programme management.  By using a multidisciplinary approach to research and its translation into policy and practice it capitalises upon political and financial commitments made at the 2012 London Declaration.
